READ YOUR DICTIONARY (and the Music!)
It's not Anchor's Away. It's Anchor's Aweigh. That means to free the anchor. I'm living in the Philippines and there is a series of readers for school children called ANCHOR'S AWAY. Read the title of the music. I am a U.S. Army band veteran who spent my first six months on a Naval installation. I learned the difference between a ship and a boat. I also learned what is meant by Anchor's Aweigh.
